This Is Not Sparta

The Kenilworth Karpovs held off the barbarians of Sparta in their second Garden State Chess League match at West Orange. A press photo from the event is shown below:

Board by board results:
Steve 'MVP' Stoyko (B) 1-0 Tom Murray
Ian Mangion (W) 1-0 Mark Van der Veen
'Mad' Max Sherer (B) 1-0 Rick Schluter
'Mad' Mike Wojcio (W) 0-1 Russ Avarella

Karpovs 3-1 Sparta

Tactics fun on board in a tough position Black played 32...Ba3!? (cheapo alert), what is the cleanest way to end the game after 33. Bd4 Bd6? See comments for answer.

34. a6! wraps things up since 34...Bxc7 35. a7 and Black can't stop the a-pawn
Thanks for the report, Ian.

Next month the Karpovs & Chess Mates battle for 1st place.
Chess mates going down....
